2:03 am
accomplishments. >> -- the white house is calling the vacation the president is on a working vacation. he tweeted over the weekend about the trump tower meeting and robert mueller's investigation. advisers are urging the president to cool it with the trump tower tweets. since they only give oxygen to the topic. we have jeff zeleny with more. >> reporter: christine and phil, president trump is continuing the working vacation in new jersey, one thing is clear he is staying out of public view, but we know one of the things on his mind. that russia investigation. we saw the tweets over the weekend when he was talking trying to explain what happened in the trump tower meeting in june of 2016. the president, of course, saying nothing was wrong. it was trying to get opposition research on hillary clinton. of course, that is not the
2:04 am
original explanation from a year ago. we know a couple of things since that tweet over the weekend. we know as we head into the week, the president's aides and lawyers are asking him not to tweet specifically about that trump tower meeting. this is why. it is adding more complication every time he weighs in. it complicates the previous explanations for it. we are hearing from the president's aides that in the next coming days, the president's legal team will have an answer or response to robert mueller's team. will he sit for the interview and what conditions will he sit for an interview? they hope to have that accomplished by the end of the working vacation. he will meet with the ceos on tuesday night tonight for dinner at his bedminster golf club doing fund-raisers. so far, nothing else on the schedule. it is clear the working vacation still has russia hanging over it. christine and phil. >> jeff, thank you. a few hours ago, shortly
2:05 am
after midnight, u.s. sanctions against iran went back into effect by order of president trump. renewed sanctions targeting gold, steel, aluminum and currency had been suspended as part of the iran nuclear deal. other nations that signed that nuclear deal remain in the agreement and some have pledged to keep up trade and cooperation with iran. so, is america actually going alone? we have senior international correspondent nick paton walsh live from london. nick, we know there is a wedge with the united states and eu. largest trading partner. this is just another. >> reporter: certainly. obviously the size of the u.s. economy means many european allies who disagree with the trump administration taking itself out of the agreement are troubled if they do business with iran. eu states will do what they can to protect companies that quote want to do legitimate business with iran. make most mistake, suddenly we
2:06 am
have not seen a stark change in iran. the economy having serious troubles. pockets of protesters as a result of the currency sliding. the new sanctions will prohibit precious metals access to trade. and in november, when donald trump faces the midterms, that they will sanction the oil and banking sector. we have seen a flurry of diplomacy in the last 24 hours. donald trump said he would be open to talks without pre-conditions with iran, but president hassan rouhani, a man known to make his choice of words careful has said he could have talked to trump right now. he would suggest an easing of sanctions happening before that occurred and they would not want to talk to somebody quote who had a knife in their arm or back. a paraphrased there.
2:07 am
the certain window of the whirlwind of trump and diplomacy with the art of the deal coming in here. and we have seen what happened in helsinki with vladimir putin and in singapore with kim jong-un and they are looking at maybe a window because trump sees the agenda to his opponent. some don't want to see talks happen until the harsher sanctions. this is the foreign policy area that the white house likes to sound toughest on. back to you. >> nick paton walsh in london. thank you.

2:34 am
the working vacation in new jersey, one thing is clear he is staying out of public view, but we know one of the things on his mind. that russia investigation. we saw the tweets over the weekend when he was talking trying to explain what happened in the trump tower meeting in june of 2016. the president, of course, saying nothing was wrong. it was trying to get opposition research on hillary clinton. of course, that is not the original explanation from a year ago. we know a couple of things since that tweet over the weekend. we know as we head into the week, the president's aides and lawyers are asking him not to tweet specifically about that trump tower meeting. this is why. it is adding more complication every time he weighs in. it complicates the previous explanations for it. we are hearing from the president's aides that in the next coming days, the president's legal team will have an answer or response to robert mueller's team. will he sit for the interview
2:35 am
and what conditions will he sit for an interview? they hope to have that accomplished by the end of the working vacation. he will meet with the ceos on tuesday night tonight for dinner at his bedminster golf club doing fund-raisers. so far, nothing else on the schedule. it is clear the working vacation still has russia hanging over it. christine and phil. >> jeff, thank you. on his working vacation of his own. democrats and republicans -- democrats and republicans will be glued to the special election to fill a vacant house seat. the last 35 years, the 12th district leans republican. 31-year-old danny o'connor is surging in the polls against troy balderson. we get more from jason carroll in delaware, ohio.
2:36 am
>> reporter: christine and phil, it is down to ohio. troy balderson should be writing his victory speech, but he is fighting for every vote he can get in the district against his opponent, danny o'connor. the race is too close to call. that is a surprise for republicans here because this is a seat that republicans have held solidly for decades. not this go around. what happens in this race could very well pivot on independents. we spoke to some independents out here in the district and they tell us who they end up voting for very much may pivot on how the president and how they feel the president has been doing while in office. >> i believe that a man's character is very important and i don't believe our president currently has my best interests at heart and i watched some of the things that have happened in the past few months and it's a

little scary. >> you are defining decision wasn't about candidates, but the president? >> more about getting democratic back into office and really for the people. >> i'm like millions of americans it is not if you like the candidate of choice, but who you dislike less. i think during the presidential election, i believe that is how trump ended up in office. i don't think the world thought he was the perfect candidate nor has he proven to be, but this race with balderson is the same way. >> reporter: trump was here over the weekend to rally the base and try to shore up support for balderson. it should be noticed that president trump carried this district by 11 points two years ago. right now as voters head to the polls this morning, the race is too close to call. christine, phil. >> thank you, jason.
2:38 am
>> let's bring in reporter sarah westwood. good morning, sarah. sometimes special licelections, you are a democrat, you hope this is a symbol of a blue wave. how significant is the one election for what we expect to happen in the fall? >> obviously both sides see strategic value in winning a special election so close to the midterms. it would be a psychological boost for republicans facing a blue wave in november. obviously democrats are trying to represelicate the success th had in pennsylvania when they were able to get connor lamb elected. obviously both sides have put a
2:39 am
lot of money in the special election, but it could come down to whether enough trump voters in the district are motivated. that is the reason donald trump took the trip to the columbus area over the weekend to try to motivate republican voters to go to the poll despite the energy on the left right now. >> sarah, i know you are close with a lot of washington republicans and political republicans. what are they telling you about what they are feeling? we have seen the polls. what are you hearing from them as they keep an eye on this today? >> a lot of republicans are nervous. the race has tight inned in the last few -- tightened in the last few weeks and because president trump has gone to columbus and if republicans lose, that will be reflected on trump and credibility heading into the midterms. he sort of put his neck on the line. if he hadn't gone, maybe republicans could say this is a low energy candidate or other factors. now trump is tied to the race in
2:40 am
a way that cannot be undone. there is a fear that perhaps trump's credibility is damaged. >> let's talk about don junior. he went on lauraingraham's show. he said there was nothing there. he went into the meeting which was a bait apparent switch. there is nothing to see here. does that put it to bed? >> if don junior had been this direct a year ago, maybe this story would be less of an issue now. president trump, the white house, don junior, the campaign, everyone involved in the situation has been reluctant over the past however months to address the issue head on. a lot of trying to avoid direct questions about it. so even though don junior is
2:41 am
basically giving a direct explanation of what we sort of been told in bits and pieces with written statements and clarifications through lawyers, this is still news worthy because we have not heard directly from the parties involved when it comes to the meeting. that left a lot of room for unanswered questions and uncertainty and suspicions. >> sarah, before we go, i want to ask about something all of us would agree if we were paid $1 for every time we heard this, we would all be wealthy. the idea the trump vaadvisers a telling the president to stop tweeting. in this case, the trump tower meeting. how realistic is that request in you covering the white house? >> president trump has been told over and over again in one form or another that his agenda is not always be helped by the tone and tenor of his tweets. he is not being reined in. he has been resistant with the
2:42 am
twitter. he doesn't like being told what to put on it. he hasn't been silent so far. he likes to vent his anger on twitter. he believes he is helping himself although the numbers don't state that. it would be surprising if he was able to put down the twitter because people are telling him now a year into the investigation it is causing trouble. >> don junior said the focus on the scrutiny in the trump tower in 2016 is to district from the accomplishments -- distract from the accomplishments of his father. trump himself distracts when he tweets. >> his personal 280 characters of freedom. sarah westwood, thank you for coming on this morning. >> thank you. still to come, a frightening sight from behind the wheel. more on this deadly explosion caught on video just ahead. plus, one of the most prominent women leading the
